Nearly there! Could this be "for the sake of reciprocity" in the first image.
The word in the second completely escapes me. I expected it to be Oath but it doesn't seem to resemble that at all.

The usual wording is ...

... sworn by Com(missi)on duly to administer

It shows that the executor did not attend the probate court but took the oath before a Commissioner for Oaths instead, saving a journey.
